As part of the Gramazio Kohler exhibition the two artists — Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler — will give a Metas talk explaining the process behind their pioneering work.
Der Workshop bietet einen spielerischen und designorientierten Einstieg in die Grundlagen des Programmierens und in die Maschinenstickerei der etwas anderen Art!

Mit dem Programm Processing werden die Workshop-Teilnehmer ihren eigenen Design-Algorithmus entwickeln, welchen sie am Ende sticken lassen können.

Fabio Gramazio
Fabio Gramazio was born in 1970 in Langenthal and surfaced to the public in 1994 as a co-founder of etoy, an art collective all about corporate identity, known for their use of the still early internet for artistic purposes. In parallel, he studied architecture in Zurich, where he received his degree in 1996. During the four years that followed, he was a scientific collaborator of professor Gerhard Schmitt at the ETH, then founded the office for architecture and urbanism Gramazio Kohler Architects together with Matthias Kohler.
Fabio Gramazio wurde 1970 in Langenthal geboren und trat erstmals 1994 als Mitbegründer des Künstlerkollektivs etoy in die Öffentlichkeit, das oft mit der Identität grosser Unternehmen spielte und für die Nutzung des damals noch jungen Internets für künstlerische Zwecke bekannt war. Parallel dazu studierte er Architektur in Zürich und graduierte 1996. In den folgenden vier Jahren war er wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter von Professor Gerhard Schmitt an der ETH, bis er gemeinsam mit Matthias Kohler ihr Büro für Architektur und Städtebau Gramazio Kohler Architects gründete.

Matthias Kohler
Born in 1968 in Uster, programmed and designed computer games as teenager, completed his studies in architecture in 1996, at a time where computers weren’t creatively used in that field. The 1.92 metre tall man collaborated with professor Marc Angélil and later with professor Greg Lynn, before launching Gramazio Kohler Architects with, you guessed it, Fabio Gramazio. In 2005 they started Gramazio Kohler Research, located at ETH’s architecture department, and 2014 initiated the National Centre of Competence in Research in Digital Fabrication.

Das Architekturstudium schloss er 1996 ab, in einer Zeit, in welcher Computer in diesem Bereich noch keine kreative Anwendung fanden. Der 1,92 Meter grosse Mann arbeitete zusammen mit Professor Marc Angélil und später mit Professor Greg Lynn, bis er mit Fabio Gramazio, Gramazio Kohler Architects ins Leben rief. 2005 wurde Gramazio Kohler Research als Teil des Architekturdepartements der ETH initialisiert und 2014 um den nationalen Forschungsschwerpunkt Digitale Fabrikation ergänzt.
